for 2012. larry levin of trading advantage joins us now. larry, it feels like we are already hanging off that cliff. > > it definitely feels that way. everybody is obviously watching for some kind of news out of washington. that is what has moved the market every day for the past couple of weeks. it will be no different today. so i absolutely agree with you. > should investors be concerned about the move in the volatility index yesterday? > > it was interesting to see that, and it is really something that at least active investors watch on a regular basis, so any time the vix moves, i think it is something to watch. > what do you anticipate for the friday trade? > > i certainly think that we will see more lower prices in the market. the s&ps last week went below 1400, this past week. we have seen that, and i think that really shows us that we're going to see more trade below 1400 in the s&ps, so that is really what i'd watch for. > what about the volume? will it be there today? > > i think as long as this fiscal cliff sits in front of us, that is going to be there. the volume will die do
